is a Wordpress plugin to automagically publish a tweet whenever a new post is created on our blog. Pretty cool. To hook up Twitter-Publisher on your Wordpress blog, follow these steps.
1. Login as site-admin
to your blog's dashboard
2. On the lefthand menu, choose Plugins
3. Then choose Add New
that expands in the menu
4. In the search box, just enter Twitter-Publisher
, it will be found as the first entry.
5. To the right, click on Install
. Wordpress will do a few things in the background and the plugin will get loaded.
6. Return back to the list of Plugins, and click on Settings
under the new Twitter-Publisher plugin. Fill out the settings, they are pretty easy to understand. You will need a Twitter account and enter the account credentials here.
Note: for best results, you will want to setup a FREE bit.ly URL shortening account. Just go out to http://bit.ly
and fill out a free account. You put the bit.ly credentials (username and API Key) in the Settings page of Twitter-Publisher.
That's it. Next time an article is added to your blog, a tweet will automatically be sent about the article.
